    I had 6 [including myself] & that seemed perfect to me!  We barhopped though & I can’t imagine wrangling more intoxicated women than we somehow already managed haha.

    We had 10. There was a fair bit of phone tag and playing catch up though. Four to eight sounds perfect to me!

    I’d also think 4-8 sounds perfect.  Once there are too many it just becomes a pain the ass to keep track of people in my opinion.  I don’t know if I’d ever want to plan one with 15+ women!

    There are going to be 5 of us (including me) in Vegas Smile

    I’ve never been to a bachelorette party with more than 6 people. It was difficult with that amount getting everyone to all the bars so I can’t imagine having to many more.

    We had a dinner with about 20 at mine, then after dinner about 10 of us went out downtown in a limo. I thought it was the perfect amount for each.

    My MOH is planning my bachelorette party. There will somewhere around 6-8 of us, including me. I think more than that might be a bit too much, considering that we’re all flying to Vegas and spending a few days there. I’ve never travelled with more than two other people and realized that I like travelling in small groups since there are less people to keep track of and less opinions about what to do. This is my first time travelling in a larger group so I’m a bit nervous but hope it’ll be fun!

    I had 8, including myself. I thought it was perfect! It makes it too hard to get dinner reservations, stick together, etc when you have too many intoxicated women!!

    I only had 3, 4 if you count myself. I wish we had more, but I just don’t have a ton of female friends and it was a bad weekend for one bridesmaid so she couldn’t come, and my MOH is out of state and understandably couldn’t be there either. I think about 6-8 sounds perfect.

    Doing things in large groups is awful unless it’s planned well.  So as big of a group as you can do what you want in is the answer.  I prefer to be in smaller groups just because it makes everything easier.

    I’m doing an OBX beach weekend (I have a down there that I sometimes use that sleeps 14) so I invited 12 girls. They are honestly people that I talk to regularly. However, since it’s a weekend/out-of-town thing, I doubt all 12 will come.

    I had 8 and it was perfection. I think more than 10 would be a bit much, and I went to one that only had three… which was kinda sad.

    I invited 10 but only 6 can come… it is in Vegas so I expected not everyone to make it. I think 6 is perfect though, especially for a weekend trip, because otherwise it is WAY too hard to get everyone to make decisions, or agree on anything for that matter! I also agree that having too few people would be weird… to each her own though! And sometimes its just hard to get everyone together at the same time!
